Winsor & Newton Artists' Watercolor Paint Tubes (professional)
These artists' quality watercolor paints are made from the finest pigments available in the highest concentrations possible, consistent with good handling qualities.
Since 1832, when chemist William Winsor and artist Henry Newton introduced the first moist watercolors, the love affair with Winsor & Newton and the brand's reputation for supreme quality rose from the flagship Artists' Water Colour range. The range contains over 90 colours.
Each Winsor & Newton Artists' watercolor paint is individually formulated and milled according to the company's founding principles:
- artfully and scientifically create colours
- be the standard bearers of clarity and brilliance
- offer the greatest possible permanence.
Winsor & Newton Artists' Watercolours are the choice of artists all over the world.
With 96 colours, our Professional watercolour range offers bright, vibrant colours and unrivalled performance.
Water colour more than any other medium relies upon the variable characteristics of the pigments used. Our Professional Water Colours use only the purest pigments, and are known for their brilliance, permanence and strength of colour.
With 75 single pigment colours in the range, we offer the widest range of modern and traditional pigments for superb colour mixing.
The transparency of Professional Water Colour is due to the way the pigment is dispersed during manufacture. In thin washes, the colour is present but the reflective white of the paper can still be seen. The colours provide brilliance and clean mixing and the natural characteristics of pigments mean that some will be more transparent than others.
93 out of 96 colours in our Professional Water Colour range are classed as "permanent for artists' use”, rated AA or A for permanence to ensure that the colours used today will appear the same for generations to come.
